Default car speakers suddently stopped working

i was driving to school this morning and halfway there they just stopped playing. my sub still plays but none of my speakers will. i put in new rear speakers last week and new door speakers a few days ago and theyv been working fine. i didnt have my music up loud at all. could this have anything to do we me blowing the fuse of my interior lights?

Well, then it must be the wiring to the speakers from the radio or the deck itself, unless you blew out the speakers already.

It's probably the wiring then. Take the deck out and double check that the harness is securely plugged in and the wires are connected tight. How did you connect them together? Electrical tape?

That's the only reason I can think of that would cause no noise to come out of the speakers.

1. The circuit board in the deck that sends audio out to the line level (speakers) is fried and still sending audio out of the RCA's to the sub.
2. Wires are loose, harness is loose in deck.
3. Bad connection at the speakers.
4. Speakers are blown.

That about all it could be, unless I'm forgetting something.

Probably deck related.
